Form analyst, SCOTT MCDONELL previews Wednesday’s Eagle Farm meeting, with horse racing tips and analysis for all 7 races. Good luck, punters!
Track Condition: Good 4
Rail Position: Out 12m entire circuit.
HANG FIRE arguably should have won here on debut. He just raced a little greenly final stages and that cost him as he found one better.
DOMINANCE is a debutant that looked impressive winning his Sunshine Coast trial. Has drawn a little wide but would not leave out of chances at first start.
BOOM COURT was in the market here on debut but he just could not finish race off well enough. Drawn to get the perfect run in transit and he will be right in the mix.
Tip: HANG FIRE
Going to have something each way on POSSOVER. Found a heavy track at only start last time in work and was poor. If she is right fresh she has perfect barrier and can figure.
KIRSTEN has shown enough in her two trials to suggest she will run a cheeky race on debut. Going to need a touch of luck from the barrier but would not dismiss.
THE MISSIONARY was little unlucky not to have finished close last start as she covered plenty of extra ground. Should get better run and must consider.
REALAIDE draws perfectly and he has been placed two of his last three starts. Expect he will sit in behind the speed and have last crack at these.
HELL OF A PRINCE was placed on the poly track two back then just a bit plain last start. Looking for her to bounce back in this and a must for place chances.
CLAIRVUE JET has not been beaten all that far in his last couple of runs. Drawn perfectly and would include in multiples.
Tough little race in this. Settled on SAILING who finally got away with a win at Grafton last start after a couple of sound placings. Drawn ideally and happy to have something each way.
FLYBRIDGE started enormous odds in similar race to this here last start. If he can find that form here he will be right in the mix again.
DUKE OF BUCKINGHAM won at Ballina two starts back then he led them up before tiring late last start. Will make own luck up front and must consider.
RATIONS finally broke through for a well-deserved win at Sunshine Coast last start after a string of placings. She will need some luck from barrier but happy to suggest she can go on with it.
OVERSEAS fought the race out strongly when placed at Ipswich last start. Should be rock hard fit and would not leave out of winning chances.
EDMONTON has found a purple patch of form winning his last couple of starts. Back on the turf and must consider in main chances.
MISCHIEF MANAGED comes into this ready to find best form third-up from spell. Placed in both runs back and this looks a winnable race.
SWAN ISLAND won two in a row then followed up with sound placing last start. Drawn perfectly and gets chance to return to winners stall.
ORSETTO has not been disgraced in either run back from spell. Has no weight on his back and if he can get some cover will be right in the mix.
Tip: MISCHIEF MANAGED
YOU ARE PRESIDENT won maiden with something in hand on the poly track last start. Drawn to get the ideal run throughout and happy to have something on her each way.
DU MAURIER powered home from the back when placed at Toowoomba last start. Sure to be better from the outing and although drawn wide must respect.
BIG ANGEL only win came when she was fresh last time in work. Race in better races in Melbourne last campaign and would not be surprised to see her win this.
